Prize for the Oldest Boiler

An initiative launched by the National Home Improvement Council is searching for the UK's oldest boiler. The competition is being run in conjunction with nPower and the winner will receive £3000 towards a new A rated boiler.

The new boiler will significantly improve the energy efficiency of the winners home.

 

Richard Cotton from nPower comments that if you have a boiler which has been in the house longer than you have been married or is older than your grown up children then it may well be the oldest in the country.

The Energy Saving Trust suggest that home-owners replace their boiler every 15 years and that upgrading can save up to £235 each year.
